    Black Screen in Safe Mode only!

    I am having trouble getting into safe mode, after I type my password, I get a black screen with nothing on it, the screen is lit up but black. It works in normal mode just not Safe Mode, I Googled 'Windows 10 Safe Mode black screen' but only results show telling you to go into Safe Mode to fix the problem, there is nothing regarding this problem in safe mode alone. This is a Windows tablet so removing cables, uninstalling/reinstalling or trying a new video card is not possible here. Tweaking.com told me to restart into Safe Mode to use the application and now I am stuck, the program will not clear the safe mode flag from the boot until I run the program which I cannot because of this issue.

    Hello, you can try this sequence:
    Press the Windows key + X together. Click Commmand Prompt (admin)

    At the prompt, type
    sfc /scannow & press <Return>
    This will take time - be patient. You may see these outcomes:
    - no integrity violation
    - found corrupt files and repaired them
    - found corrupt files but was unable to fix some
    The last indicates a problem.
    Some find repeating the above a couple of times with a restart between solves the problem.

    If the above reports a failure, then the following downloads new files
    Open a Powershell window and at the prompt type (or copy and paste)
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth and press <Return>.

    Again, be patient.

    See if there's any improvement.

    However I suspect you will need to do an in-place upgrade repair (which keeps almost everything).
